Back when dinosaurs roamed the earth, we registered for china, crystal and silver when we got married. Have you noticed that doesn’t happen any more? Nobody registers for the stuff any more. What’s going on? Should we get rid of it all?
Check out the podcast episode to listen to what we had to say.
Okay, as you probably know many millennials just don’t seem so interested in these heirloom pieces, but don’t go throw everything away! Oh no, I have good news for you. There’s still a place at the table for all these goodies. You can still use china, crystal and silver. We use our silver a lot for meals and some people use it every day. I have my tea with a silver spoon every morning.
The silver spoons are much thinner than stainless steel spoons. If I accidentally pick up a stainless steel spoon, I can tell because it feels bulky and heavy. If you are looking to buy a silver-plate spoon you can find one pretty cheaply on eBay or etsy.
And here’s the even better news, you can use these items as decor in your home. How? Let me count the ways.
silver pitchers make great vases
gravy boats can be used to force bulbs
empty silver pitchers are lovely with no flowers
silver champagne buckets can display boxwood balls
crystal is beautiful displayed on shelves
plates shine when stored in a plate rack
display silverware in an ironstone water pitcher
stack platters for a casual look
store pitchers and tureens in glass front cabinets
Silver, crystal and china are gorgeous! If you don’t display them, then how about using them for meals? Make an everyday meal special by using your fancy plates and things.
How do you like to use crystal, china and silver?
